13.09.2018For some time now, two essential trends have been dominating the field of medical technology and are ensuring short innovation cycles: dematerialization and digitalization. Accordingly, products are increasingly becoming more compact whilst their performance remains the same or is improved, they are increasingly easy to use and as a whole, innovations are driven by software and less by hardware.
05.09.2018Can prosthetics be intelligent? Yes, they can. “Intelligent prosthetics are prosthetics that perceive their surroundings via sensors. Based on these perceptions, they then adapt their functions appropriately to meet the patients needs,” explains Prof. Arndt Schilling.
27.08.2018German medical technology manufacturers are benefiting from digitalization in the world of medicine. Companies who are members of SPECTARIS, the industry association, have calculated that they are experiencing growth rates of five percent for both the previous and present year. The industry association sees digitalisation as the main stimulus, and this mega trend can be seen internationally.
17.07.2018The market for medical technology and products is characterized by sustainable growth. The innovation cycles are short. However, approval procedures differ widely from country to country and are very complex as a whole. Restrictions due to trade policies and exchange rate fluctuations are further challenges that providers have to face.
02.07.2018For years, almost no other industry has been shaped so much by sustainable growth as the medical technology industry and its suppliers. Furthermore, there are practically no other industries in which it is so imperative to remain at the cutting edge of progress and gain information on new products, trends and technology.
04.06.2018The seventh MEDICA App COMPETITION has just been launched and this means one thing: The search for the best health app solutions in the world has begun.
25.05.2018Messe Düsseldorf and the IVAM Microtechnology Network hosted the 12th edition of the COMPAMED Spring Convention, offering a sneak preview of the trends at COMPAMED. With almost 800 exhibitors at last count, COMPAMED is the leading international specialist trade fair for medical technology suppliers, taking place annually in Düsseldorf.
27.03.2018Now that exhibitor registrations for MEDICA 2018 have opened in Düsseldorf, the program planning for the accompanying conferences and forums of the world’s biggest medical trade fair (12 - 15 November) has also been started immediately.
28.11.2017A perennial highlight of MEDICA, the world’s leading medical trade fair, is the MEDICA App COMPETITION. Development teams from all over the world compete in a challenge to create the best health app solution. The winner of this year’s MEDICA App COMPETITION (#6MAC17) is iSikCure from Kenya.
16.11.2017“MEDICA and COMPAMED have always had a high degree of international impact, and this remains their trump card. Top decision makers from around the world come together here and see the huge breadth of what we have on offer, which is the international frontrunner and has yet to be beaten”, Joachim Schäfer, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf, said, summing up the four-day run of both shows.
